Boot an ESXi virtual machine from an iso

Hi I have an ESXi 6.7 server and I am trying to boot a virtual Server 2012 server to an iso.  I have added it and it shows on the booted system, but I can't figure out how to boot to it.

In the past I have been able to do it by pressing f12 or del, but this one goes by so fast I can't get it to trigger.

Bing tells me there are other ways to set it to boot to it, or even enter the Bios, but I can't get a clear answer.

Thanks all.

Can you try another ISO have you booted from this ISO file before ?


I have booted from this before, on another virtual machine.  I would love to get to boot options or bios.
